    The Presidents in a New Light

    As one who enjoys books on our presidents this one was a real treat. Here are stories and insights that are very rare but carefully brought together to give a picture of the White House that one will never forget. Here are the joys and pains of family life, all the hurts and trauma, with world events swirling around them. I loved the parts about the daughters of Woodrow Wilson.

    All the Presidents' Children: Triumph and Tragedy in the Lives of America's First Families

    For a history buff this is the best book I have read in years. There is detail here and nuance that one cannot find in most books of the presidents. I was especially struck by Alice Roosevelt, such a press favorite that the darkness behind her acid, witty tongue was obviously concealed by an adoring press. And George W. Bush, love him or hate him, is surely a fscinating figure in this account. I appreciated the appendix and the 50 pages of source notes.

    All the Presidents' Children: Triumph and Tragedy in the Lives of America's First Families

    The presidents totally change when you look at them from the perspective of the kids. Lincoln, whose face goes thru sea changes every time a new book comes out, is especially intriquing as a parent. fascinating study.

    Untold Stories

    This was a fun read because it was loaded with all of these stories with familiar historical events all around but slightly different because the are centered on the kids instead of the presidents and first ladies. The mruder at the maria monroe wedding was intriquing and the fight between Robert Todd and Mary Lincoln after the assassination. There is a lot here.

    A Search For Identity

    This is an amazing study and as I see it the real challenge for children of such high achievors is carving out their own seperate identity. The stories of rommance made for fast reading. The perspective of the presidents really changes. I will never forget Thomas Jefferson's letter to his daughter, listing the things she should do to earn his love.
